Notification Sent out on February 29th:

Classroom Lecture Funding is Depleted for the 2015/16 Academic Year.  No further funding for classroom lectures will be approved this academic year.

Notification sent out on February 12:

The Committee on Lectures and Cultural Events would like to inform all those who are planning to apply for classroom lecture funds that CLCE funds for classroom visitors/lecturers are almost depleted after an unusually robust year.   As much as we would like to support the applications we receive, we will not be able to fund classroom visitors after our money runs out.   Our funding is limited each year.  If you have a lecturer whom you plan to invite this Spring, we encourage you to apply shortly or seek other sources of support. 


Important Notes:

*PLEASE NOTE: All proposals must be submitted to Corinne Frazer at cfrazer@wellesley.edu by the deadline - No PDF's.   The committee will not review late applications.   Applicants must apply for funding well in advance of the scheduled event. There is no retroactive funding.
